The study assessed implication of HIV/AIDs on household income in Dodoma Municipal. A sample of 150 respondents was purposively and randomly selected and a case study design was adopted. Primary and secondary data were collected. The qualitative and Quantitative data were analysed by using the MS-Excel. The results showed that majority of the respondents (60%) engaged themselves in farming and gardening. Also, findings revealed that the respondents whose monthly income was below Tshs.100, 000/= or the equivalent of $ 60 spent a great portion of their income on transport and medication, while those who earn income above Tshs. 100,000/= spent a great portion of their income on special food and transport.
Simple and environment friendly Pd-containing poly (vinyl alcohol) PVA catalysts were prepared by casting from their aqueous solutions. A series of PVA containing different ratios of Pd was characterized by IR, electronic spectroscopy, thermal analysis, XRD, Field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The binding of Pd to the polymer matrix and its effect on the polymer structure was studied by means of XRD, XPS and thermal analysis. The catalytic activity of the Pd-based catalysts towards the oxidation of polyphenol trihydroxy benzene was investigated and showed a significant catalytic activity in case of the polymer sample containing the lowest Pd concentration (A1). The oxidation mechanism was proposed. Kojic acid was used to inhibit the oxidation reaction and it has been observed to be a non competitive inhibitor
Entrepreneurial intentions are considered as more accurate predictors of entrepreneurial behavior. Understanding entrepreneurial intentions will enable the researchers to investigate the dynamics of entrepreneurial venture creation process. However, the controversial findings on the determinants of entrepreneurial intentions and the focus on the isolated variables without a theoretical rationale triggered this study to question what antecedents would predict the entrepreneurial intention of undergraduates. Thus, this study was conducted with the aim of identifying the antecedents of entrepreneurial intention of undergraduates. Accordingly, a sample of 209 undergraduates from Uva Wellassa University of Sri Lanka was studied by using a structured questionnaire on entrepreneurial intention, perceived desirability, perceived social norms and perceived feasibility. The results of the Binary Logistic Regression employed in order of achieving the objective of this study
This paper explores the benefits and adverse effects of tourism on the psycho-social and economic life of the locals in the coastal village of Cavelossim, Goa (India). In the study a sample comprising 232 household heads were interviewed. Using Chi-square and Kruskal-Wallis H test, it was found that all household heads perceived that tourism had negatively impacted the psycho-social life of the locals. While the major economic benefits of tourism perceived were employment and increased income, the major adverse effect was increase in food prices. It was also found that due to tourism traditional occupations were abandoned for more lucrative employment.
BACKGROUND: Stroke is an important cause of disability and death. Recently several studies have claimed that RDW is a good predictor of outcome in stroke. As RDW is a complete blood count (CBC) parameter that is routinely determined in clinical laboratories, these studies important implications in patient management in developing countries. The present study was taken up to find out if RDW can be used as an inexpensive biomarker for stroke. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A case-control study involving 52 test subjects and 54 matched controls was conducted. RDW values were determined in test and control groups, compared and statistically analysed. RESULTS & CONCLUSIONS: Significantly higher mean values for RDW (p <0.001) are observed in stroke patients compared to reference population. RDW values higher than 13.0 are associated with several fold increase in the risk of stroke (odds ratio 4.1; p value <0.006); but, the level of RDW does not show a linear relationship

The major purpose of this study is to find out the extent to which previous knowledge of Book-keeping will predict students’ academic performance in Principles of Accounts 1 (BED 111) at the NCE 100 level in College of Education, Ikere Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria. The study employed an ex-post facto research design with a sample of 371 selected from a population of 708. Three research hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significant using T-test, Standard deviation, Multiple regression and Analysis of variance. A finding from the study reveals that previous knowledge of Book-keeping significantly contributes to the prediction of academic performance of students in Principles of Accounts 1 (BED 111) among others. It was concluded that the influence of previous knowledge in teaching/learning process provides the background to framework upon which new learning will be placed. It is recommended that Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) should properly streamline
